Anthony Boucher (born William Anthony Parker White; August 21, 1911 - April 29, 1968) was an American science fiction editor and author of mystery novels and short stories. He was particularly influential as an editor. Between 1942 and 1947 he acted as reviewer of mostly mystery fiction for the San Francisco Chronicle. In addition to "Anthony Boucher," White also employed the pseudonym "H. H. Holmes," which was the name of a late-19th-century American serial killer.

In a 1981 poll of 17 detective story writers and reviewers, his novel Nine Times Nine was voted as the ninth best locked room mystery of all time.
